    Math 222, Calculus II, is the second semester course of the calculus series and is intended as a continuation of the development of single-variable calculus. We will cover the differential calculus of transcendental functions (exponentials, logarithms, inverse trig functions, etc.) as well as continue the integral calculus we began in Math 221, Calculus I. We will introduce techniques of integration such as integration by parts, trigonometric substitution, and partial fraction decompositions.

    We will also cover the mathematics of sequences and series. That is, we will study lists of numbers and the sums of those numbers. When adding an infinite list of numbers, it may be surprising to you that the sum may in fact be finite. Thus we will learn "tests" for determining if a series "converges" to a finite number or if it actually "diverges" to infinity. Finally, we will also learn about parametric equations and polar coordinates, and the calculus of such things. Throughout the course, we will discuss applications of these topics to problems coming from other disciplines.
